Comments Off on Schools update: Lara qualifies for All Ireland Combined Events Uncategorized

Congratulations to Lara Gilespie who qualified for the All Ireland Secondary Schools Multi Event Final in early November. The result was all the more impressive given that this was Lara’s first competition across most of these events (Hurdles, LJ, Shot Putt, HJ) and she crowned it off by winning the 800m overall. Well done Lara.

Well done to all our athletes who performed extremely well on a demanding Phoenix Park course in the Dublin Even age groups yesterday. In a break from previous course lay outs, this year saw the introduction of the very demanding 2000m loop for some of the younger age groups.

Congratulations to AmyRose Farrell who was a stand out winner of the girls U16 4k race making her decisive break on the second lap and winning out convincingly. Libby O’Gorman was a strong 2nd place in the girls U10’s with Sean O’Riagain equally impressive finishing in 4th place in the Boys U10’s whilst Simone (6th) and Issy (12th) led home the girls U12 team. Louis Dignam and Doug Walshe were the to the fore in the boys U12 race also finishing in the Top 12 whilst Sarah Flaherty was running in the girls U14 race. Read more
